Oscar the Hungry Unicorn saves Christmas in this brilliantly funny second book from Lou Carter, the bestselling author of There Is No Dragon in This Story

With a super sparkly glitter cover!

It's Christmas Eve and Oscar the Unicorn is hungry.

He's also eaten the Christmas tree, the stockings and is about to make a start on the presents. But at least Oscar hasn't eaten the magic reindeer food that allows the reindeer to fly ...

Oh. He has. All of it.

How is Santa going to deliver presents to the rest of fairyland with his trusty reindeer unable to fly? Well, Oscar has eaten so much magic reindeer food that he can barely keep his hooves on the ground - maybe HE can pull the sleigh and save Christmas!

A brilliantly funny sequel to the Oscar the Hungry Unicorn.
